well i overclocked my i7 3770k with 1.15v @ 4.5ghz with a d14 and the temps never rose above 65c

and in reality there is nearly no performance gain in games with a 4.2ghz chip and a 4.5ghz other than bragging rights which is stupid

September 29, 2012 8:18:02 PM

going to change both the Asus Video Cards for MSI
September 29, 2012 8:29:31 PM

Don't get a 660ti. Go with thebigtroll's build or at least get a hd 7950. For a $1000 plus gaming build you should get a gtx 670.

whats wrong with a 660 ti

Nothing its just the gpu is the most important part of a gaming build. So if you can fit a gtx 670 into your budget you should get it.
September 29, 2012 8:48:15 PM

someone plz tell me whats better 1 or 2 and cooler Lower the temp the better

my build is better. period

ivy does run hotter according to most people but my friends temps and my temps show otherwise. he gets max 70c when he does a 4.2ghz on a i5 3570k while i get 4.5ghz with 60c max. he has a hyper 212 though

it doesnt matter if the guy shows his rig. it doesnt prove my build is worse
September 29, 2012 8:55:47 PM

ok il get the 1 build
